Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller joined a federal complaint Tuesday challenging new rules concerning overtime pay.

Under the final version of the rules, unveiled in May, salaried employees making less than $47,476 a year will earn time-and-a-half for working overtime.

It’s twice the old threshold, and some small businesses have expressed concern about being able to make the switch.

The complaint, which includes Indiana and 20 other states, urges a federal court to block the new rules before they take effect on Dec. 1st.
